Ethereal runtime panic: QtQuick.Window not installed

jxxjxx Member Posts: 1
Hi all, Ethereum and Go noob trying to build according to instructions.

I have go-ethereum built and running on a fresh Kubuntu vm. Ethereal seems to build fine, but when executing I get the appended message, which seems to be Qt related. Any tips?

This is what I used to install Qt:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-sdk-team/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sdk qtbase5-private-dev qtdeclarative5-private-dev libqt5opengl5-dev

(full details incl Qt at

-------ERROR MSG-------

$ go install && ethereal
